The application period for residencies in 2021 is from 15 December 2020 to 01 March 2020. Ten research residencies will be advertised for 2021 in Lower Saxony, North Rhine-Westphalia, Schleswig-Holstein, Hesse, Bavaria and Saxony. The theatres of residence are: theater wrede +, Oldenburg (Lower Saxony), Theaterlabor Bielefeld, Theater im Ballsaal Bonn, Freies Werkstatt Theater Cologne (NRW), Theaterwerkstatt Pilkentafel (SH), Theater neben dem Turm Marburg (He), Sensemble Theater (BY) and Societaetstheater (SN). After reviewing the applications, the jury will announce 18 invitations to the “finalchoice#” in Oldenburg. At “finalchoice#”, each finalist group presents their research idea in short on stage and answers questions from the expert jury about their research approach.
The application for a flausen+ scholarship starts by completing the application form, which must be sent to flausen[at]theaterwrede.de by the end of the application deadline. After the pre-jury meeting (usually in April), 18 groups will receive an invitation to the finalchoice# at theatre wrede +, Oldenburg. In this second round, the finalist groups will have five minutes to introduce themselves and their idea to the expert jury. The day after the finalchoice# event, the jury will meet and award the scholarships that will take place the following year in one of the houses of residence.
